Suite yourself man. I was just trying to save you $120. Again, NO ONE will ever see this. All the cited examples you gave were visual diy mods. I may try it but don't think it would help much due to Steeda intakes open design. It can be done for probably less than $20.

My comment on the intake opening in the frame.. The opening is the same for the ST. Which makes 252hp.
The turbo sucks enough air through the current opening without anything other than a small velocity stack, which does not even USE the whole engine bay front frame opening. (it is blocked off at the right side, about 15% is blocked off)

So exactly what engine mods is the op making that a big ol' ram air thingie would have ANY meaningful use???

I suggest to the op skip the ridiculous ram air idea. Take off the stock snorkle under the front bumper. and leave the ram air to the fantasy realm.

Save your $100 for something that might be worth it.

But MOAR AIR = MOAR POWA saw it on TV. I mean, it might help a bit but nothing thats going to make a huge difference..with people with stick to proven power adders.. intake, header, exhaust, tuning, cams, intake manifold (usually lmao), turbo kit.

I installed the Ford Racing ST snorkel to keep the air box temps as low as possible. I have tested the temp in the air box and it's at the outside ambient air temp almost all of the time. It evens does this in stop and go driving and at the slower speeds of city driving.
So I am satisfied with these results and if I get any increased air flow, that's just a bonus!

I found the 3d file floating around for the ford racing version of this and modified it on my pc to have the larger mouth and 3d printed it. I'm sure you could shorten the length of the tube with even the most basic modeling skills and then have it 3d printed pretty cheap.

This is the link I went to and used. https://sketchfab.com/models/aff1a05...59e55776f2a4ad
My print bed is only 200x200 so I broke it into 3 pieces and acetone welded them together. Make sure you paint it to protect the plastic from premature deteriorating plus it looks cool through the grill
